Erzherzog Johann (1782-1859)
This Cache is devoded to Erzherzog Johann whos 150th anniversary of the death is celebrated this year. Erzherzog Johann was in fact a very important person for Styria and the rest of Austria, since he founded several mostly nonprofit organisations and was always considered to be a man of the people. There's tons of material about him available on the internet, please have a look on it.
About the Cache:
Close to the header coordinates you will find a newly renovated statue from Erzherzog Johann. This is the center of all your following doings. In preperation for the cache answer the following questions and calculate the bearing angle A and the distance B both taken from the statue.
Like already mentioned Erzherzog Johann is known for his foundations, the following list shows an extract of nowadays organisations based on his doings. Find out when they were originally founded (even tough they might have been called different at that time):
- Steiermärkische Landesbibliothek
- Technische Universität
- Grazer Wechselseitige Versicherung Aktiengesellschaft
- Montanuniversität Leoben
Take the numbers consisting of the 3rd and 4th digit of the founding year only (18XX) and sum them up, let us call the result SUM. Then calculate the following: A=SUM*2+12 B=SUM/2+10
It might be useful to have the whole list of organizations in mind. In case you have the choise between two sides, take the less dangerous one. Please bring your own pen!
Happy caching, dr-no.
